FAIRLY LEGAL Season 2 Announced

At their annual Upfront presentation in New York yesterday, USA Network announced the official renewals of several top shows – the biggest of which included the original hit series FAIRLY LEGAL. Fairly Legal was the top new series of the year, averaging 4.6 million total viewers.

Shot on location in Vancouver, the show stars Sarah Shahi (The L Word) Michael Trucco (Battlestar Galactica, Castle), Virginia Williams (How I Met Your Mother) and Baron Vaughn (Law & Order). The series centers on Kate Reed (Shahi), a top litigator fed up with the daily injustices of the system who takes a hard turn to become the ultimate anti-lawyer. Kate finds the middle ground for a wide variety of adversaries, from Fortune 500 corporations to bitter divorcees.

Created and executive produced by Michael Sardo (The American Embassy) and executive produced by Steve Stark, the show found its footing quickly among the young adult audience and become a breakout hit after its premiere. Production on 13 new episodes will begin late summer 2011 and new episodes will air the beginning of 2012.
